Permanent Pitstop

Encountered this early 1950’s Dutch built Eysink motorcycle in the Fhehite Museum in Amersfoort. Not really very strange as the Eysink Brothers who created the bicycle, motorcycle and car brand came from Amersfoort

Here’s some wiki on the marque:
The Eysink brothers started out manufacturing bicycles. In 1897 they built their first automobile. However, the brothers did not begin production in earnest until 1903 (although they produced about 10 cars in this period) when they built a range of shaft-driven motor cars. During that time, motorcycle and bicycle manufacture had taken precedence. The shaft-driven cars were 10/12 hp, 16/20 hp, and 20/30 hp vehicles. A 30/40 hp six-cylinder was also produced. A light car called Bébé began production in 1912; this lasted until 1919. Peak production was around 50 automobiles per year. In all, Eysink produced about 400 motor cars. The company continued to build motocycles until 1957.
